Re: [xml-dev] XML aggregation question?


On eXist:

the last time I tried eXist, while testing by adding/deleting 
documents/nodes and frequently restarting the (tomcat) webapp that eXist 
was embedded in, somehow (???) caused thousands of unidentifiable 
fragments to be created and added to the DB. Perhaps because it was 
trying to save some kind of context/session info - I don't know. It was 
discussed on the list by more than one person who experienced it, but 
could not be reproduced by the developers.

I also experienced hangs in the response from eXist that was also 
reported by other people. Also not able to be reproduced by the developers.

I lost confidence for a specific need I had at the time. I still have 
hope for it - it does seem to be the best bet out there.

For your situation eXist and XMLDB are both open and free (as in price). 
For someone who does not wish to open their source, eXist is the only 
one that is free (as in price). I don't mind paying for something, but 
XML databases seem to be more of a 'cross you fingers and close your 
eyes' kind of thing. Tamino just seems way to high priced - it seems 
like alot of money goes into their salesforce. XMLDB just pissed me off, 
but still too high priced.

So I have been sticking with the filesystem, Apache's Lucene for 
indexing and CVS or Subversion for version control. If I need a 
database, I hire a RDB consultant.
